Top 5 Winter Inspire Essential Oils

As the season’s change and the temperatures vary, our habits, energy levels, needs, and outlook can change as well. Therefore, the start of a new season can be an excellent time to change which essential oils you are using and diffusing around your home.

Cooler weather can often mean lower energy levels and less time spent outdoors. It can also be a time of quiet reflection on the last few months, and new beginnings as we plan for the rest of the year.

It is the perfect time to use essential oils that will uplift you, boost your energy levels, clear the mind, and help to strengthen your immune system against seasonal threats. In addition, you can celebrate this beautiful time of year by filling your home with spicy, citrusy aromas that remind us of winter. Read on for our top winter inspire essential oils, and our favourite winter blends.

Winter Inspire Essential oils

Cinnamon Bark

The warm, uplifting aroma of Cinnamon is ideal for cool winter days to lift your spirits as the days get shorter and many of us begin to spend more time indoors. Cinnamon also has antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties that may benefit the immune system and help to protect against seasonal illnesses. Furthermore, it can help to reduce pain and soothe sore throats.

Cinnamon is also a delightful winter ingredient for cooking and baking delicious comfort foods, whilst simultaneously filling your home with its pleasant aroma.

Wild Orange

Citrus scents provide a lovely addition to winter blends; however, the seasonal benefits of Wild Orange don’t end there. The revitalising aroma of Wild Orange helps to lift the mood and reduce feelings of sadness, anxiety, and stress. Furthermore, it offers energising properties that promote concentration, productivity, and creativity.

In addition, Wild Orange essential oil has detoxifying properties and may also help to support the immune system.


Ginger has high levels of antioxidants which can help to support the immune system at a time when seasonal illnesses are on the rise. In addition, it provides support for the respiratory system, helping to ease the symptoms of congestion, sinusitis, and laryngitis. Dilute and apply to the chest, the throat, and the bridge of the nose, take a drop with warm water and lemon, or diffuse.

As well as providing a number of health benefits, Ginger is a delicious addition to any winter stir fry, stew, or other meals.


Winter is the perfect time to reflect on the summer and make plans for the coming months, and Frankincense essential oil can help you to do just that. Diffuse Frankincense to clear and calm the mind, lift the mood, and feel inspired. Alternatively, topical application can help to rejuvenate and beautify the skin, assisting with the drying effects of cooler weather.

Frankincense can also assist with health issues relating to colder temperatures. Applying to the throat and chest can help to relieve the symptoms of coughs and congestion, whilst adding 1-2 drops to your tea can provide support for the immune system.


Warm, spicy, and woody, the aroma of Clove essential oil is perfect for winter. In addition, it has stimulating and energising properties that are ideal for this time of year when we often need a boost.
